  1. hey guys,

    I have a HP PAVILLION ZE 5500.

    WHEN I PLAY DIABLO 2 ON THE NET FOR ABOUT 10-20 MINUTES IT SOMEHOW RESTARTS AND IT DOES not complain to micro soft or what ever.

    I was then under the impression that i should re-install Xp.I am unable to.My both the Windows Xp home and pro are bootable and none are booting.

    I have changed the boot order to dvd drive yet no luck. I have 1 drive.

    I also have partition magic.

    Is there a way to do a clean-format install.I can install windows Xp from windows but i am not able to boot it. i am dying to try and try new things.

    About a month or two back my old drive had gone bad and i had asked a pro engineer to replace my laptop with a new one.Now i have shifted to another location.

    We were talking just about 2 days back before i left and he said that the drive is bootable etc.,. i shud not hav problems.

    helpzz mez............
